Jim Thome card #188 1999 Upper Deck Challengers for 70 #22

  • Thought that this was an insert from the Upper Deck base set.  Wrong, it's from the Challengers for 70 set, a little different.
  • Not a bad looking card, the back is a little bland as it shows the slugging percentage of the top 1st basemen from the '98 season.   Jim was 5th behind McGwire, Galarraga, Delgado and Vaughn.
  • Career homer #188 was hit 8/25/99 in Oakland off of A's reliever Doug Jones.  By the time he hit the homer in the 6th, the Indians already had enough runs on their way to a 12-4 romp.
